When Glenna Phelps- Aurich, Executive Director of Logan County Chamber of Commerce (third from right), presented Shelly Greenwood, Executive Director of the Cooperating Ministry of Logan County(third from left) with the Business of the Week accolade, joining the celebration were Jeri Lopez, Ashton McPhie (Assistant Director), Dawn Richardson and Dean Boeff.

.....Cooperating Ministry of Logan County (CMLC) was established in 1981 and became a local non-profit agency in 1986. CMLC was founded by the Pastors of eight local churches.
.....Goals of the organization were to temporarily assist local families and individuals, as well as offering aid to travelers who were stranded in the area. Aid would come in the form of food, lodging and transportation. CMLC began as a Clothing Exchange and Sales to support the goals of the program and eventually adding a food pantry.
.....The first office of CMLC was located in an upstairs room at 211 W. Main St. courtesy of Centennial Mental Health Center in Sterling. The Clothing Exchange and food pantry were located in the basement at the same location and at the St. Anthony School building. Later the clothing sorting, storage area, and food pantry were moved to 1200 W. Main St. (the site of the old Meadow Gold Milk Distribution Center). The Clothing Exchange was moved to the vacated Knight's of Columbus building at North 4th and Poplar Streets. .In February 1985, all departments were moved to larger quarters at 2006 S. Highway 6.
..... The current building, located at 230 N. 10th Ave. (previously a roller-skating rink) was purchased in July 1989. After a complete remodel it was dedicated on Oct. 1, 1989. The many gifts from grants, individuals, organizations, congregations, and businesses made it possible to be debt free on Jan. 3, 1990. CMLC continues to occupy this location and has grown from the original 8 supporting churches to over 25 supporting churches and congregations.
.....CMLC provides services to Logan County residents through several prevention/intervention programs as well as three monthly food assistance programs, a Thrift Store and a home health care equipment program. CMLC continues to operate as a traveler's aid and specializes in basic need emergency services.
..... Ministry of Logan County is located at 230 N. 10th Ave., 970-522-6405 or can be contracted at www.coopminlc.com, and on Facebook, Cooperating Ministry of Logan County.

“Small Business Now” contains valuable insights from over 1,000 American small business leaders and 1,000 U.S. consumers. It provides a granular look at what trends we are observing in the world of small business, paired with guidance from our own market-ing experts on how business leaders can turn that knowledge into action. The data, and the trends, show a disconnect between what small businesses think their customers want and what consumers are actually looking for. This report outlines the four main areas where that gap is most prominent, and ways small businesses can alter their marketing strategies to start driving more results.

10 Reasons Infrastructure/Jobs Act Is Needed
After decades of neglect, the state of American infrastructure is poor. America currently ranks 13th in the world when it comes to the overall quality of our infrastructure and the American Society of Civil Engineer’s 2021 Report Card rated it a C-. It is past time we brought our infrastructure into the 21st century, and that is exactly what the $1.2 trillion bipartisan bill passed in the Senate and now up for consideration in the House does. It is the largest federal investment in both public transit, clean drinking water, and waste water infrastructure in American history. It is the largest investment in passenger rail since the creation of Amtrak and makes the single largest dedicated bridge investment since the construction of the interstate highway system. .. . .. .. . 10 Reasons

COVID UPDATES COLORADO
Gov. Polis Gives Colorado COVID Update

Licensed Healthcare Staffs Must Get Vaccine
The State Board of Health has approved emergency rules requiring vaccination for staff in licensed healthcare settings. The Board to implement rules requiring licensed healthcare facilities to mandate their personnel -- including employees, direct contractors, and support staff-- who interact with individuals seeking medical care to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. At this time, approximately 30% of the healthcare workforce remain unvaccinated. With the rise in the delta variant and increased stress on the healthcare system, ensuring that all workers in licensed healthcare facilities are vaccinated is one of the most effective means the state can take to protect the public health, safety, and welfare of the most at-risk Coloradans and end this ongoing pandemic. ....................................................Vaccine Requirement

Vaccines For More Than COVID Prevention
As students across Colorado head back to school, Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) asks parents and guardians to keep vaccine-preventable diseases out of Colorado classrooms and help ensure continued and safe in-person learning. While children 11-years-old and younger are not yet eligible for any of the COVID-19 vaccines, there are other vaccines that protect them from 16 other infectious diseases, including measles, whooping cough, mumps, and varicella (chickenpox). The state is experiencing decreases in vaccination coverage as identified through aggregate, de-identified data self-reported to CDPHE by schools and child care providers for the 2020-2021 school year. With the exception of hepatitis B, immunization rates for school-required vaccines fell among kindergartners -- with coverage for polio and varicella falling below 90%.
